Call for Proposals 2020 - 11 - Clean Sky 2 H2020-CS2-CFP11-2020-01 Closed!


The overall objectives for the Clean Sky 2 programme for the period 2020-2021 are:

  • To execute the technical content as defined for the two-year period and as stabilized at the end of 2019 and ensure this is adequately incorporated in the Clean Sky 2
  • Development Plan and the grant agreements;
  • To determine in the course of 2020-2021 the definitive configuration of the Programme’s major demonstrators and technology development themes
  • To implement solutions for leveraging Clean Sky 2 funding with structural funds;
  • To implement an effective and efficient management and governance of the programme;
  • To implement an appropriate and agreed approach for each transverse area that allows for the transversal coordination to be executed and technical synergies to be extracted;
  • To implement one further call for proposals and implement within this call the additional and complementary format of “thematic topics” enabling a wide range of competing technology solutions to address broad problem-oriented topics
  • To disseminate the information about the last call for proposals (for partners), in order to reach a healthy level of applications and ensure the success of the topics;  To ensure a time-to-grant no greater than eight months for the calls for proposal in no less than 80% of topics and selected proposals;
  • To execute at least 90% of the budget and of the relevant milestones and deliverables;
  • To ensure a high level of technical and process integrity in the execution of the programme, including the calls and their resulting selection of CS2 participants; and a
  • maximum relevance of research actions performed towards the programme’s objectives.
  • To finalise and implement the impact assessment strategy and reference framework for the TE
